When you're visiting Southport, you can see the Oak Island lighthouse and in the distance, the lighthouse on Bald Head Island. By far, Prices Creek is the most fascinating.

You can only see this light house from the Southport/Oak Island Ferry or a boat. Too bad it's on private property w/no access. It would be great to visit and learn about it from an historical marker, if there was one.

If you're cruising up the river from Southport, you'll see it there... It's just a "mini lighthouse" that isn't lit, isn't accessible, and how it got on this attractions list, I don't know.

Price's Creek Light is a range light (an aid to navigation) not a light house. It is on the grounds of the Archer Daniel Midland plant and is not accessible. It can be seen when departing from the Bald Head Island and Southport-Ft. Fisher ferry terminals.
